All I Want…is five minuets.
“From now on, I’m someone different. Cuz it’s no fun to be predictably lame. From now on, let’s do it different. Cuz I just want what I want.”- All I Want, LCD Soundsystem
LCD Soundsystem is genius. They were around from 2005-2011, then announced that was it…and played a final show at MSG.
Fans are rabid for more, and I am one of them.
How much do I love this band?
James Murphy is playing Wavefront Fest this Sunday (a day I normally spend relaxing and staying far away from people and crowds) in Chicago at 2pm and I’ll go just to watch him spin records.
The Band documented their final show and on July 18th at select theaters around the Country, their film; “Shut Up and Play The Hits” will run. I could only get tickets to the midnight showing, despite the fact I have to be up at 5:30am the following day for TV. There wasn’t a chance I’d miss it or a doubt in my mind that I’d go to see the film.
Another reason I’m a fan? James Murphy isn’t a cheesy artist who does tons of fluff interviews. Plus he has a french bulldog- and we all know how I feel about Frenchies.
I’m waiting to hear if my request is approved, but unfortunately I don’t think it will be.
If it’s not, I’ll respect that too and never stop being a fan of a sound that changed my life forever.
